Sepsis - The Problem
Time and sensitivity of the gold standard blood culture system is not enough
Current clinical practices (pathogen culture and PCR amplification) while specific, takes from 24 hours to as long as 5 days to sensitively confirm sepsis.
Competitor product detection times range from 3-48 hours but consist of expensive, complex technology and present widely variable sensitivites.
Clinicians are urgently looking for a rapid and sensitive alternative to combat rising sepsis incidence, healthcare costs, and antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
SepTec is making significant strides towards addressing this colossal need for rapid and accurate diagnosis of septic pathogens and sub-pathogens.
